From NYT Pics of the Year:
A great juxtaposition balancing the naturalist painting, the mascot and Newt’s knowing look. It’s as if Gingrich realizes that, despite all the vision and knowledge he has behind him, it’s contaminated by his foolishness.
And that fact — not lost on the American people — is the true elephant in the room.
